IOM's Data Analysis Centre was set up to respond to calls for better international migration data and analysis.

Established in Berlin in September 2015 at the invitation of the Government of Germany, the International Organization for Migration’s Global Migration Data Analysis Centre (GMDAC) was set up to respond to calls for better international migration data and analysis. Data are key to inform migration governance, improve programming and promote a better public understanding of migration.


Marta Sánchez Dionis

Based at IOM’s Data Analysis Centre, I primarily work on the Missing Migrants Project, which involves documenting deaths and disappearances during migration worldwide. My past work has included coordinating a research project on the protection of women refugees and asylum-seekers from sexual and gender-based violence in Europe for a German foundation and conducting research on access to justice and victims’ rights at the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA). I trained as a lawyer at the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR), where I worked in strategic litigation in the field of international criminal justice. I hold an LLB in Law and a BA in Political Science from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and an MA in International Relations from the Barcelona School of International Studies. I conducted part of my studies at the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris, France) and qualified as a lawyer in 2014.
